Irish poet and songwriter Thomas Moore also wrote of St. Brigid:

"Like the bright lamp that shone in Kildare's holy fane [shrine]
And burn'd through long ages of darkness and storm,
Is the heart that afflictions have come o'er in vain,
Whose spirit outlives them, unfading and warm!"
(Moore, Thomas. The Works of Thomas Moore. Vol. IV. Paris: Galignani, 1823. 71.)
